Welcome back to this year’s NAE Tanzania Expedition students and teachers, who arrived back in Bangkok, tired but inspired, on Saturday. In next week’s Newsletter some of the students will share their reflections on the Expedition and, as promised last week, we will be launching next year’s Tanzania Expeditions, and our first ever Snowsports Expedition very soon.

Last Tuesday, Year 9 Thai students had a fantastic opportunity to enrich their understanding and appreciation on the cultural topics about the Thai way of life in rural areas, visiting the  Golden Jubilee Museum of Agriculture Office in Pathum Thani. Students also learned about the lives of the local communities, their wisdom, traditional and moral values, as well as experiencing  rice planting.

This was another excellent opportunity for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom, with non-Thai students also learning about rice farming in their Geography lessons last week, as a link between the previous topic on Climate and Ecosystems and their next topic of Globalization.

As Julius (9c) said, "This was a good experience for Year 9 to learn about agriculture in Thailand. We learnt many different things, such as how to plant rice and about the projects of King Rama 9 and watched an animation about deforestation. We also played a fun game called the Teamwork Bridge. Overall, I thought that the trip was enjoyable and fun and I hope to see more trips like this one."

With only three weeks left of this term, my Calendar extract below now shows everything happening in the High School for the rest of this term, with many more different Educational Visits and sports fixtures listed, as well as several events taking place in school.

I look forward to seeing many of you at these events though, as Mr Paul A has already shared with Year 9 parents, I will be away from school on a safari on my own, at the IB Global Conference 2019 in Hong Kong, on Monday and Tuesday next week.

Ms Jen (Senior Deputy Head: Teaching and Learning) will be available at Tuesday’s Year 9 Parent/Student/Teacher Meetings to discuss Options, but if any Year 9 parents would like to meet me, either to discuss their IGCSE Option choices or their son/daughter's work in Geography, please e-mail me to arrange a time to meet.

Leavers’ Survey

Thank you to everyone who has already completed the Leavers Survey that was sent out. If you have not yet done so, we would appreciate your response as soon as possible as work is already underway to make sure that classes for next year are balanced and will give every student the best possible learning experience. It is also very important for our Admissions Team to have an idea of how many new families we will be able to welcome into our community.
